From the Inside Flap
With forty-four "New York Times bestselling novels to her credit, Sandra Brown is one of romance's best-loved authors. She has been hailed by "Rendezvous magazine as an author whose "larger than life heroes and heroines make you believe all the warm, wonderful, wild things in life."
Sexy, funny, and wonderfully romantic, here is the unforgettably sensuous story of a woman too smart to fall in love -- and the man determined to prove her wrong.
Allison Leamon knew that pretending to be her identical twin sister was a bad idea. For although the two redheads looked exactly alike, they couldn't be more different. How could a no-nonsense scientist like Allison possibly fool anyone into thinking that she was the bubbly, vivacious Annie?
Trading her sensible shoes for strappy sandals, her eyeglasses for contacts, and her lab smock for a chiffon dress, Allison was determined to try her best. Her first challenge was a dinner date with Annie's fiance, Davis. But what Allison didn't expect was the presence of Davis's best friend.
Allison was far too logical to believe in love at first sight, but there was nothing logical about the way she was responding to Spencer Raft. The dark-haired, blue-eyed mystery man had an assurance that Allison found positively maddening.
And by the end of the evening, she couldn't help feeling that Spencer had been attracted to a carefully constructed illusion. She was certain that the handsome adventurer wouldn't give her a second look if he knew her as she really was.
But Spencer Raft was a man of many talents -- and seeing below the surface of things was one of them. He sensed the flesh-and-blood woman beneath theelaborate charade, and after years of wandering the world in search of excitement, he knew he had finally found what he had been looking for.
But first this incurable romantic had to convince an intractable skeptic that there was more to love than what she could study in a laboratory. And what better way than to propose a passionate experiment of his own?
On board his yacht, Spencer and Allison would fulfill their wildest fantasies and deepest desires; but when their blissful idyll was over, would it all prove to be no more than a pleasant interlude -- or the real thing?

I must admit, however, that I was quite irritated when Spencer was so persistent and intense when he was trying to get "Ann" to leave Davis for him-----when it was actually Allison---who was not the one engaged to Davis. I find it hard to swallow that any many would be that heavy into a pursuit of his best friend's fiance. I think most decent men would be a little bit more subtle. I also thought at the time that perhaps he had caught on to the thought that this was the "other" twin----after he was told she had an identical twin. I thought the portrayal of Spencer as such a "wolf" was not too realistic. And then to have him turn around and become such a romantic, so suave----hard to fathom.
I read this book in just a couple of hours----a very fast read. It didn't have much of a plot, no mystery, no deaths----just pure romance and love. A fun book when you want to "escape" for a few hours.
This book was not a gem.
To say I didn't like the book is putting it mildly. I had to force myself to keep reading it. Near the end I found myself skipping pages just so I could reach the end faster. And when I did finish, I threw the book across the room because I hated it so much.
This novel is a reprint of Sandra Brown's earlier works -- that's obvious by the end of the first chapter. It's based on an unbelievable premise and the characters are not likable. You can't sympathize or empathize with them. Why does a woman who's already engaged get a breast enlargement to please her fiancee? Who becomes a millionaire buying stamps? And why would a woman want to get pregnant with a man she barely knows?
Don't read the book. You'll hate yourself for wasting a couple hours of your life once you've finished.
